I was getting all this inspiration at the same time I realized that a bunch of dresses I used to wear to death feel a little shorter on me now than I remember. I’m guessing I haven’t grown in height, but perhaps in other ways where I no longer tolerate garments that could expose me with one wrong move. Did I mention I’m turning 25 this week???
Clearly the solution here was to start layering the old, shorter dresses over top of a longer piece in my wardrobe. It’s a look of the moment but also a way for me to keep wearing things I’ve loved in the past without feeling like I need to constantly adjust them. Basically a win-win situation. It’s also super cozy for fall!
My favourite part about this sweater dress (which I found at value village about 5 years ago and didn’t take off for the entire 1st winter I owned it) are the ties at the bottom. They keep it from being too oversized by cinching in the hem a little.
Have you tried this look yet?
